Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bourne End

Willinstructing a Bourne End conveyancing lawyer make the ownership transfer easier?

Bourne End is a special area, where regional know-how helps. The relaxed pace of life has it’s attractions – just not when it comes to your conveyancing.

It will certainly help if they enjoy established connections with financial advisers, local authorities, surveyors and counterpart Bourne End conveyancing firms

I am selling our home in Bourne End and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Bourne End lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Bourne End. Having lived in Bourne End for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Bourne End?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Bourne End. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Bourne End. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Bourne End

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

I was advised by a couple of local estate agents in Bourne End to locate a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your site ahead of another?

We refuse to make any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My hope is to acquire a ground floor flat in Bourne End. Conveyancing solicitor has been awaiting, from the vendor, building insurance paperwork. This afternoon I was advised that the vendor must send the insurance schedule for the flat above also. Why would my solicitor need to review the insurance for the flat above? Is it really necessary? We have been stalled for the previous 4 weeks…

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Bourne End to discover Conveyancing in Bourne End in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the whole block - which is definitely preferable. You should clarify with your conveyancer but it would appear that your conveyancing practitioner is attempting to verify that the complete building is insured. Insuring your apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be rebuilt due to lack of insurance cover.
